I am looking for a good, solid dependable reel that I could use for Channel Catfish & Carp, normally in the 5 LB to 10 LB range. The reel has to be under $100 and I've decided as far as a rod goes, under $50 would be best. I will use 12 LB to 15 LB mono and toss dough-bait, nightcrawlers, and maybe even chicken liver. Using mainly egg sinkers, 1/4oz to 3/4oz in weight depending on the current... Looking for something to hold for a long time if possible. Abu Garcia C3 5500/Shakespeare Ugly Stik 7' MH rod has caught my eye... I don't use Baitcasters but would love to try it. I use mostly spinning reels but a Baitcaster would be nice. So, in your opinion, what is a good rod/reel combo for using 12 LB - 15 LB mono, 1/4oz - 3/4oz weights, dough bait nightcrawlers or chicken liver for bait, catching 5 LB to 10 LB cats/carp? Spinning or Baitcasting? Thanks for any help!
